I really liked playing WoW Minis. But it seems like the game is dead now. Its particularly frustrating that UDE pulled down their websites. I'll be damned if I buy another of their games due to that...

Anyways, what is another similar game to that?

What I liked about WoW Minis:
-Strategy played out on a hex grid.
-Do not have to paint the minis (I like the minis to better form the strategy, but don't really care about them too much, or my wife poking fun at them...)
-Pretty solid rules that lead to some interesting strategies and situations.
-Spells, swords and fantasy theme...

What I would prefer:
-Better 3 player support. Seems like there is always 3 of us looking to play...

Do not like:
-Warhammer, I watched some youtubes of this game with my friends and we all agreed it is not for us. We do not have much money or time for oodles of minis. Playing without the grid did not look fun at all either. Seems like it captures the epicness of large battles nicely, but we are interested in small squad tactics.

Thanks everyone!

Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie Discontinued but not dead. Unfortunately it's getting hard to find at a good price.

You may have more luck findingHeroscape Master Set: Battle for the Underdark

I've got a copy of Heroscape: Rise of the Valkyrie I'd be willing to let go for $60 + shipping. PM me if you're interested.
